Frequently Asked Questions - Trees

 1. What size trees do you sell?

We have trees available to sell from 3ft up to 60ft in height. We also have a wide variety of trees available including Norway Spruce, Nordman Fir and Douglas Fir to name but a few.

2. Do Real Christmas Trees sell Wholesale Christmas Trees?

No, we do not sell trees wholesale. For your nearest wholesale supplier, please contact British Christmas Tree Growers Association and they will be happy to assist you.

3. When do you sell Christmas Trees?

We sell Christmas Trees all year round. The only time that we are unable to deliver any Christmas Trees are between May and July - This is the growing season for our Christmas Trees and they are not ready for delivery. 

4. How wide will the Girth of my Christmas Tree be at the widest point?

Christmas Trees are a natural product and all trees will grow in different ways. As a general rule, we estimate that the Girth of a Christmas Tree will be between about a 1/3 and 1/2 of the height. E.g. a 10ft Christmas Tree will have a Girth of between 3.5ft and 5ft at its widest point.

5. Can you use Cinco Christmas Tree Stands outdoors?

Cinco Christmas Tree Stands are designed for Indoor use and we do not recommend using them for Outdoor Use.

6. When should I purchase my Christmas Tree?

We would recommend ordering your tree as soon as possible - this is certainly the case for large trees of 15ft in height and above as we need to plan these into our delivery schedules.

7. When should I take delivery of my Christmas Tree?

The answer to this question depends on whether the tree is being used Indoors or Outdoors. If the tree is to be used Outdoors, you can take deliver at the start of November and the trees will be fine until after Christmas.

If the trees are to be used Indoors, we would suggest that Norway Spruce will last for approximately 3 weeks, whilst Nordman Fir (Low needle drop trees) will last a little longer. With both types of tree, it is important that they are kept away from Heat Sources and kept well watered at all times in order to maximise their life expectancy. 

8. Where should I keep my Christmas Tree Indoors?

Christmas Trees should be kept in a cool place and away from any Heat Source E.g. Underfloor heating, radiators and fires etc. Trees should also be kept well watered. Did you know that an average Christmas Tree can use as much as 3.79 litres of water per day!

9. Should I trim the base of my Christmas Tree?

After a Christmas Tree is cut down, the Christmas Tree will naturally form a layer of SAP to seal their cut surface - This can prevent water absorption. If you remove approximately 1/2 inch from the base, this will assist the Christmas Tree.

10. I have just opened my Christmas Tree and the needles are brown at the bottom of the tree and there are loose needles. Is this normal? 

This is normal. When a christmas tree is wrapped up by us, you will be looking at the underneath of the needles. These needles have never received any sunlight, hence the reason why the needles are brown.  Once you unwrap your Christmas Tree you will see that that needles are Green. All of our Christmas trees growing in our field look exactly the same as this.

Occasionally when you unwrap your Christmas Tree, you will find loose needles - again this is normal as Christmas Trees regularly lose their needles all year round.

If, however, you find that your Christmas Tree is dropping needles excessively in the first few days of receipt, this may indicate that your Christmas Tree is too dry and will need to be watered and moved away from any heat source.

11. How are your Christmas Trees Measured?

Our Christmas Trees are measured from the base of the tree up to the crown of the Christmas Tree. We do not measure to the top of the tree. 

 Frequently Asked Questions - Deliveries

1. How are your Christmas Trees delivered?

Generally, Christmas Trees up to 12ft in height are delivered by our third party Courier service - DX. 

Trees from 12ft in height up to 20ft in height are delivered by our own specialist delivery vehicles. These are deliveries on a flat-bed vehicle, so assistance or equipment may be needed in order to unload and manoeuvere your Christmas Tree.

For Trees from 20ft in height to 60ft in height, we generally use heavy duty lorries with cranes to deliver your tree. This is a specialist delivery service.

2. Will you install our Christmas Tree when you deliver it?

Unless we have quoted otherwise, all prices are for kerb-side delivery only. We will not install Christmas Trees in stands unless the service has been requested and paid for.

In any case, we do not offer installation services fro Christmas Trees less than 20ft in height.

4. What happens if we are not in when the delivery is going to be made?

All of our delivery teams should contact you in the event that you are not in to take delivery and they should ask you where you want your Christmas Tree to be left.

All of our delivery teams are instructed to leave your Christmas Tree in a safe place e.g side of house or on your drive.

5. How are Christmas Tree lights, decorations and other accessories delivered?
